Bill gates and other rich people have paper money. Which means it is not real money. The assets that they hold values that much (intangible). Now for some reason say Bill gates wants his money as cash or tangible assets then the stocks he wants to sell would not sell at the current price, it will fall. He would have hard time cashing his government bonds too. As such, most of the top rich people in the world are not worth as it seems.

Now with his money Bill Gates can lease BD for a year (buy the government budget). After the recent election, Tariq Rahman unofficially bought the country for 5 years. lol, who is richer?

2/3 months ago I watched a show on MTV 'the richest kids' but it didn't show anything about Lakshmi Mittal eventhough I've heard he is the richest in Britain and one of the richest in the world..

Now eventhough the show was about kids who earned their own money + inherited or will inherit their rich parents' money, how come there was nothing about Mr Mittal?... if he's so rich, surely his kids are IN THE ZONE right?

Anyway I think Bill Gates is worth 40bn and sadly each of his kids will only inherit 0.2something% of the money!

the rest of it will go to charity...

yes I heard of mittal .... actualy probably in Banglacricket not sure... He has steel business if I remember it correctly.

Currently the richest in world are Bill gates, what's his name... found of berkshire hathaway, Michael Dell and wife, brother, mother, sister blah blah of walmart's owner.. who got rich of inheritence.

You don't have to say it

I meant to say Gates deserves to be rich and he is rich.. and u in comparison is a poor man whehter u deserve it or not.

u said it's "sad" taht his kids will get less than 1% of wealth. - hence my comment.

For me, Gates is by far the most admired person. I don't like ppl like trump, Bloomberg etc....

Good luck

You have no right to judge whether or not I deserve to be rich.

It is SAD because unlike any other rich people's kids, only Bill Gates' will get the least amount despite the vast fortune he's made and I never implied anything negative by what I said so don't jump to the frickin conclusion my friend.

Unless you have anything constructive to say, don't say nothing. Your personal attack will not be welcomed.

you speak of my mind because I know very well how to discard 'certain types' of people here who are just full of themselves and don't have the brains to come up with a better argument.

How can I be defensive and aggressive at the same time? Quite a few people have made remarks about me to an unnecessary extent. I don't mind criticism or a simple joke but when a person is being judgemental through sarcasm, I don't appreaciate it. You probably have the tolerance and patience to endure such comments but I dont, and thus my 'aggressive' reply to make that clear. Thanks for your concern anyway.

I hope Lakshmi MIttal is sharing his wealth with the needy people in India. With billions of dollars he can surely change the lives of millions of people.

I saw in BBC that he is planning to invest a few billion dollars in steel industries of India. That's indeed a good news.

hahaha...yeah, hatebreed's sure having problems coping..lol


to hatebreed:

chill, buddy. orphy doesn't mean anything. he's not passing any judgement on you at all. he's like that - most (not all) of his posts are meaningless. i and many others actually find it pretty hillarious. he is in fact the resident BC clown, and "loved" by all

i thought u'd have known by now (judging from the fact that u registered in june), but you will soon if you take a look at his previous posts.

orphy's just joking/playing around with you, so stop giving us the opportunity to take home a good laugh from this conversation.

your name describes you well.....breeding hatred everywhere......

its just that ordinary posters like me find it rather annoying to see you pop up out of no where and start an online brawl...

i tried saying that to you in a polite way but your snobbish & stubborn nature couldnt take it......

if you dont like it dont post here...if do want a proper debate dont use words like "frickin" or "bloody" unnecessarily just coz u cant bear any sort of humour....

ciao!

You're the 2nd person after 'whiteguy' to assume my nickname has anything to do with my posts. I suggest you look back in the 'Bangladesh sovereignity...' thread to clear up your misconception.

Let me make something clear right now..... I never have and never will condone someone posting unnecessary remarks about me that you seem to find 'humourous'. Perhaps I lost all my sense of humour recently after another person in this forum already made me laugh too much by makin a total buffoon out of himself.... or may be I need to work on my sarcasm analysis skills till i go bald :bald:

There is no brawl goin on here. If Orpheus is the 'BC clown' then I am the same old Bangladeshi homebreed who happens to make a straighforward response to a joke that ain't so funny.

You've been polite, and I have thanked you for your concern not mocked you, so dude, take a chill pill and just let this lame argument die.

Ciao!
